Our mission is to develop and advance clinical and translational research within the Department of Emergency Medicine (DEM), through collaborative research that advances science and informs and improves emergency care for the patients we serve.
Our work extends from bench to bedside, addressing critical issues relevant to the treatment of emergency medicine patients in pre-hospital, community, academic, and international settings. UF emergency medicine faculty conduct research in a multitude of fields including sepsis, cardiac emergencies, palliative care, resuscitation science, medical education, and health disparities.
Developing and supporting junior researchers is a key component of our academic mission. The Department supports faculty pursuing institutional and federally funded training programs. The University of Florida Clinical and Translational Science Institute houses multiple opportunities and resources to support developing and established clinical scientists. The program also serves the career development and educational needs of faculty, residents, and students with research interests, facilitating recruitment and retention of talented academicians in emergency medicine.
